on all things handmade...




Here is the finished product...another hand stitched and beaded fabric artwork.  Each piece we make is unique.  Even if we use the same fabric again, it will be cut and sewn differently.  That is one of the special things we love about hand crafted products - as well as the little imperfections that show that something has been made with a creative touch and not simply mass produced.  We mondo cherry girls love the little flaws that make things real.  Except, however, in our own work!  All three of us spend hours agonising over whether our work is perfectly straight and symmetrical.  It means that everything we do takes twice as long and we often pull things totally apart and start again just so we feel it is perfect.  We know it is hypocritical and it drives us nuts!
